Making a difference. Yes, we can. We totes can.

After all these long agonizing months of debating and going back and forth, it has finally been announced. Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States, President Barack Obama.

Voting never felt so good. It's almost unbelieveable.

This is where America has made history, where WE as a PEOPLE have made this possible, after seeing that during the last several years making no progress or change we finally have taken that next step towards the evolution of this nation. Where the first black man in our history to ever be nominated and had reached this far into the elections has been, as of several hours ago, elected the 44th President of the United States of America. It seems so surreal to be real, and yet it is. It makes me happy to no end. It was no contest, to be honest though. I didn't have doubts, even though judging by this country's passed voting tendencies I was a bit nervous, but after the tallying up the votes state by state and by the time he reached the 200s and was still rising I knew optimism had paid off. This is what America is about, it's what we were built on and it's something we've been deprived of for so long. This is where we needed. Change. A fresh face with fresh ideas, taking us forward instead of two steps backwards. A man who has genuine passion and drive to change this nation for the better.

Tonight has restored my faith and hopes for this country. These are people that want the same things I do, that don't want to fall back on the same shit we've been dealing with. There may be some that'll disagree, but let's bypass those differences and handshake on the fact that for the next four years civil and optimism needs to be taken place as we gradually shift this country and its people into a better direction than where it's been heading.

I have nothing left to say. Obama's speechifying did it all, and it was the right about of patriotism and passion this nation needed to hear at this moment in our lives. Needless to say, I am proud of what happened tonight and I am proud to be an American right now. How he succeeds in role of leadership will depend on his first priorities in the coming days and months, and I am fully prepared for it.

Yes, we can, and we did. SO SAY WE FRAKKING ALL.
